I want to set up a 3 monitor display but I am fairly certain my gfx card only supports 2 monitors so I decided that SLI is my best option to add a third (I currently use 2). I know that normally you need 2 of the same cards for SLI but will I need to get the same MSI card that I have now (see link above) or can a get a different GTX 550 TI like this or this?

If you are gaming I would highly suggest you stay away from SLIing those 2 cards, they are very weak. If you want to then you could, they just have to have the same amount of VRAM last time I checked. You can mismatch brands, anything but VRAM.
Needs to be the same model of GPU. Brand doesn't matter.
Helps reassure the OP if multiple people confirm the information.
ok thanks from reviews I have read the cards should be able to handle most things SLIed and since one has been able to handle 2 monitor gaming fine on high settings (just tired of the damn bezel) i figure two could handle 3 monitors
If you are going to game on multi monitor (which was what I meant by poor performance) then it will not work well. They are limited to 1gb of ram and if you have high resolutions you will need A LOT more ram than just 1gb.
